Fujifilm G Format Image Sensor

The Fujifilm GFX 50R features a 43.8×32.9mm CMOS medium format sensor: a product of Fujifilm’s rich history, cutting-edge digital technology and extensive knowledge of medium format film cameras. Boasting an effective resolution of 51.4 million pixels and paired with high-performance GF lenses, the sensor delivers superior tones and sharpness that will impress professional photographers shooting in the world of commercial, fashion or landscapes.

Both the shape of the light-gathering micro-lenses and the processing from the photodiodes have been optimized to achieve a high level of sharpness and broad dynamic range. The lowest native ISO sensitivity of 100 and the 14-stop dynamic range, achieved with 14-bit RAW data, delivers high definition images in a variety of conditions with notably rich skin tones and intricate foliage detail.

X-Processor Pro

The Fujifilm GFX 50R sports the X-Processor Pro image processing engine, capable of drawing the very best out of the 51.4 megapixel sensor. Its advanced processing accelerates and optimizes the camera’s performance in a variety of areas including stunning color reproduction with Fujifilm’s unique Film Simulation modes, in-camera RAW conversion to the 8-bit TIFF format, accurate contrast AF, quick startup time, and minimal shutter release time lag and shooting intervals between frames.

Fujifilm G Mount

The Fujifilm GFX 50R uses the G Mount, which has a mount diameter of 65mm, flange back distance of 26.7mm and minimum back focus distance of 16.7mm. It uses as many as 12 electronic contact points for sending and receiving data, plus it supports the use of a wide variety of lenses and accessories. The short back focus distance, made possible because of the Fujifilm mirrorless system’s structure, affords greater freedom in lens design to contribute to the development of fast, compact and high-performance GF lenses while preventing vignetting to deliver edge-to-edge sharpness.


Rangefinder Style



Rangefinder Style

The rangefinder style design allows you to keep your eye on a subject while looking through the viewfinder with the other eye. This allows you to monitor the surroundings more clearly while ensuring proper framing of your subject using the EVF.


The Fujifilm GFX 50R’s magnesium alloy camera body is dust- and water-resistant while also being able to withstand low temperatures to-10 degrees C. Despite carrying a large image sensor, the camera is compact, lightweight and extremely durable. The GFX 50R rangefinder style design, weighing just 775g, makes it astonishingly compact and lightweight despite being a medium format digital camera, especially when fitted with a compact lens. Weather seals on the inside of the camera body means it is made to withstand dust and moisture and low temperatures. That makes it a perfect choice for a wide range of tough shooting conditions, as well as in-studio.


The compact and lightweight GFX body is designed with attention to detail to achieve advanced functionality and elegance at the same time. Examples of this can be seen in the optimized shapes of individual components, surface texture of the magnesium alloy body, and the use of rubber material for a more comfortable grip. Operation dials, including the shutter speed dial, are milled out of aluminum blocks for premium texture. Extra attention has been given to the internal structure and fine adjustments have been applied to individual operations, as evident in the clicking sensation and sound. The more you use the camera, the more comfortable it becomes.



Dual Card Slots


The Fujifilm GFX 50R is supplied with a 3.69M-dot EVF with 100% coverage. It uses dedicated rich lens elements to achieve extremely high definition finder live view and offers a diopter adjustment range of -4m-1 to+2m-1.

LCD Monitor w/ Smart Touchscreen Display

The rear 2.36M-dot LCD monitor measures 3.2 inches and offers 100% coverage. The smart touchscreen panel enables intuitive operation and tilts in two directions for easy framing and shooting from high or low angles.

The touchscreen makes it easy to select an AF area and enlarge the Live View intuitively.

Dual Card Slot

Both slots support high-speed UHS-II cards. They can be assigned to store files according to their format, e.g. JPEG, RAW or Movie.

Image Formats



Image Formats

The Fujifilm GFX 50R saves pictures in a variety of formats and quality, including two sizes and three compression levels of JPEGs, as well as compressed/uncompressed RAW. Even when you are shooting only in RAW, the camera records 12-megapixel thumbnails at the same time. Its in-camera RAW conversion function also enables RAW files processing with the ability to save them as 8-bit TIFFs.


The newly-developed focal-plane shutter is one of the world’s first specifically designed for medium format mirrorless cameras. It is a low-noise mechanical shutter that withstands 150,000 actuations**, offers shutter speeds up to 1/4000 sec and has an electronic first curtain. Choose from three shutter types, including an electronic shutter.

Mechanical Shutter

4sec. to 1/4000sec. (P Mode), 60min. to 1/4000sec. (All Modes) Bulb Mode (up to 60min.), TIME: 60min. to 1/4000sec.

Electronic Front Curtain Shutter***

4sec. to 1/4000sec. (P Mode), 60min. to 1/4000sec. (All Modes) Bulb Mode (up to 60min.), TIME: 60min. to 1/4000sec.

**According to Fujifilm internal testing.

***When using the electronic front curtain shutter, the continuous shooting speed drops to 1.8fps and using high speed shutter, the shutter switches to mechanical shutter. (1/640sec. to 1/4000)


Single Focus Points and Focus Area – TTL Contrast AF is available in Single Point, Zone and Wide/Tracking modes. In the Single Point mode, the camera offers up to 425 Focus Points and six different Focus Area sizes. Select the minimum size for pinpoint focusing.


Grain Effect

Color Chrome

Film Simulation

Incorporating knowledge developed from over 80 years of photographic film manufacturing, the GFX 50R’s Film Simulation modes allow you to enjoy different color tones and rich gradations as if actually swapping films. A total of 15 modes are available, including PROVIA and Velvia to reproduce vibrant colors, plus ACROS for fine-detailed monochrome images. The Grain Effect function can be combined with all Film Simulation modes to add a textured look and deliver a greater range of artistic effects.

Grain Effect

Graininess is added to the entire frame to simulate the look of film-based images.

Provides an extra boost to saturated colors for a richer result.

3D Electronic Level

RGB Histogram

Voice Memo


3D Electronic Level

This electronic level uses a 3D system and is highly effective for architecture or landscape photography, when the accuracy of horizontal and vertical lines is crucial.

RGB Histogram

The Fujifilm GFX 50R can display four types of histograms: RGB and brightness, each with or without highlight warnings.

Voice Memo Function

Record your voice for up to 30 seconds to make notes about the images you are shooting. This makes it easy to keep track of shooting data in situations where writing notes is impractical.

    A Lamborghini for the cost of a BMWI’m not sure how much people appreciate what a revolution this camera is. It is 3x less expensive than anything comparable. The same medium format sensor would cost ~$16,000 from Mamiya.Medium format is in a completely different league than full-frame digital cameras. A 50 megapixel Nikon or Sony full frame camera cannot approach the 50 megapixels from a medium format sensor. In medium format, each of those pixels is huge compared to a full-frame camera. The result is images with inherently vivid colors, beautiful tonal detail, exceptional dynamic range, and resolution at large print sizes (or with substantial cropping) that full frame does not achieve. Coming back to the car analogy, a BMW can be sporty and agile, but it’s not designed and tuned from the ground up as a sports car like the Lamborghini.A medium format camera is not for lightning fast autofocus tracking of athletes or race cars. It is not as easily used for long telephoto wildlife photography. The format has limitations like any camera format. However, for a wide range of uses it provides superb image quality that is a real joy and surpasses anything that can be achieved by smaller formats.I think Fujifilm made the right decision not to come out with a full frame camera. The GFX 50R is comparable to a full-frame professional SLR in size, and runs laps around those camera in image quality (with the trade-off of tracking fast subjects and shooting at extremely high frame rates.)I have owned a Leica M6 (film) and digital SLR and mirrorless cameras over the last 30 years (including a Nikon D810 now and a Fujifilm XT-2). Nothing has ever come close to medium format for image quality. I used to own a Fujifilm medium format rangefinder that used 120 film and had a built-in fixed lens (like a chunky point and shoot). The photos I took with that camera are the most enjoyable I have ever taken. To finally have the equivalent again in a small (for medium format) and carefully made camera is a revelation.If you are considering a Nikon D850 or Sony A7III plus two or three lenses because you want fantastic image quality, the GFX 50R is worth very serious consideration with on of the lens bundles. It is more expensive, but if you can live with one lens instead of two or three and learn to enjoy the method and thoughtfulness of taking a photo with one focal length (or a modest zoom), you might get a better result with the Fujifilm.

    major issues great images when it works.UPDATE:got on the phone with Amazon to return faulty camera. The rep helped and was able to get the ball moving with a return. Now sending it back! Thanks to Amazon’s customer service.I have had this camera for 7 months now and this I love the image quality but I’ve been getting colored spots in my images. This happened on a high profile shoot. Sent it back once and nothing changed. I am not confident using this on a professional job because of the issues I’ve had. I tend to keep another camera on me for when the dots show up. Sending it in for repair for the second time, hopefully they fix the problem.

    takes some learningI have had this camera (and the Fuji 100-200mm lens) for less than a month, so I am still in learning stages. As a medium format camera, this is bulkier and heavier than “regular” cameras (and the same for the lens), so it somewhat limits your handheld shooting. It has a large viewing screen and well-placed easily used buttons for main functions. One feature I really like is the Fuji app that enables you to download photos to your iPhone very easily and also to run your shutter remotely with a button on your iPhone so you can eliminate any shake that might arise by pushing the shutter button when the camera is on tripod. I have a to to learn yet about the use of this camera and lens, but in the first few weeks I am quite pleased with it. Oh, I should mention that the 50r does not have image stabilization, so that is a bit of a downer. You have to rely on the OIS in the lens itself. Given the weight of the camera/lens combination, I have had some trouble with sharp handheld shots. As a result I find myself frequently relying on a tripod, and this leads me to think of medium format shooting as a slower process than with other cameras. Having decided this, I am comfortable with it and have shaped my expectations for a medium format outing differently from sessions with other smaller cameras. Mostly I think now this is a function of the lens rather than of the camera. A smaller, lighter prime lens would probably make this a very functional handheld “street shot” camera. But for me, that will have to be for later. These lenses are very expensive. But that’s another story. update: One revision I must offer is that the Fuji app does not really live up to one’s expectations. When it works, it is wonderful, but it often won’t open at all or if it does it may suddenly shut down in the middle of a job and not restart. Fuji really needs to do some work here.

    Better than you can imagine !!I just bought my 50R last week. I am in the learning phase but oh MY GOD… I have three full frame DSLR cameras all top of the line but this Fuji GFX 50R has retired them all, You will be in shock when you open the files on your computer…

    Perfect Professional CameraI bought my GFX 50r at release for full retail. I came from a Nikon D810 and the GFX blew me away in every respect. I use it Professionally for high end Architectural Photography and occasional for Corporate and Family Portraits. I paired my GFX with an adapted Canon 24mm TSE for Architecture and then the GF110mm for Portraits. With just these two lenses this camera fulfills all of my needs. Well, except for maybe portability. My personal choice for Travel and every day Photography is my Leica Q. The GFX is just too big for family outings, vacations, hiking…at least in my opinion.

  6. Jeff Nelson

    Great camera HORRIBLE Fuji WiFi connectivity.99% of the time I needed the WiFi and Bluetooth feature on this camera to work with my iPhone to use as a remote but unfortunately the FUJI app and the pairing was fickle. It would stay connected for two – three shots and then loose connection. Very tough WiFi and Bluetooth set up BUT the camera is great at taking pics crisp hi resolution.

  7. J. Eason

    And One Camera . . . To Rule them AllThis medium format wonder hews closely to the form and function of its Fuji forebears. It accepts all manner of lens adapters and with the exception of particular wide lenses, most lenses have near to full coverage for the larger sensor. The native lenses are exceptional but pricey.

    Replacement for medium format film cameraI’m a medium format film shooter and this is a great replacement for film. It is slower but if your a film shooter you will be use to it
